Differences between asteroids and comets
By: D. Vogt
Asteroids and comets are two categories of small space objects which, together, make up the majority of the objects in our solar system - although, since they are small, none of these are as visible or as distinctive as the solar system's eight planets (including...
How scientists have achieved teleportation
By: Nicholas Ward
With quantum physics at the forefront of the next generation of technological advancements, we move closer to an age of star trek philosophies and the world as we know it may be changed so drastically that it can only be related to a science fiction...
By: D. Vogt
Over the long term, asteroids pose perhaps the most serious threat to life on Earth. Large asteroid impacts are believed to have been responsible for at least some of the nearly catastrophic extinction events in Earth's long history, such as that between the Cretaceous and...

"Beam me up, Scotty?" Well, not quite yet. But scientists in China have taken a major step towards the Star Trek transporter.The first breakthrough using what's known as 'entanglement' came last decade when scientists achieved teleportation of sorts with individual photons of light...
Principles of flight: Drag, lift, thrust and weight
By: Jeff Ragan
On December 14, 1903, Orville and Wilbur Wright invented the delayed flight, when Wilbur’s first attempt crashed. It was three days later and at 10:35 am on the day of the 17th, the brothers completed four successful flights. The Wright brothers had overcome the...
